The Victorian Curriculum F–10 incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian priorities and standards. In Levels 7 and 8, students make and respond to visual artworks. They design and create visual expressions of selected themes and concepts through a variety of visual arts forms and styles. Students develop an informed opinion about artworks based on their research of current and past artists. They examine their own culture and develop a deeper understanding of their practices as an artist.
